· Workflows which are open to customization by the use of SharePoint designer – it is similar to Microsoft FrontPage (suitable for those who have moderate computer literacy).
· Workflows having custom applications which are programmable using visual studio and the .NET framework. (Suitable only for advanced computer users).
The best part as evident is that it caters to all the levels of computer literacy, for instance, beginners, intermediate users and advanced users. This feature allows the organizations to customize the work flows according to the needs and competency of the workers and meet the ever changing needs of the work environment.
